Bianchi is the world’s oldest bicycle-making company still in existence, founded in 1885 by Eduardo Bianchi in Milan, Italy. No doubt, Bianchi is the pioneer of bicycle development since the beginning:
The 1953 World Chamiponship took place in Lugano, Switzerland, near Italian border. After 7h30min of racing, Fausto Coppi won with solo attack ahead of Belgiums Derijcke and Ockers. After that prestigious win, Bianchi renamed their previous top model Paris- Roubaix to Campione del mondo.
Prudly presenting another Bianchi masterpiece – Campione del mondo. Extraordinary details of the steel frame makes you understand that Edoardo Bianchi was a medical tool engineer, before he started with bike manufacturing. Equiped with Campagnolo Gran Sport gearing system, Magistroni cranks, Universal brakes and levers, NiSi rims, Brooks saddle, so all correct components as Fausto Coppi used in mid 1950s. Hard to find better deal.
Very rare. Siutable for any historic cycling event. Nice cactch for any vintage bike collector.
